In 2017, Stanford kicked off a Long Range Planning effort to identify and guide focus against challenges and areas of opportunity in the upcoming years. Nearly 3,000 ideas were submitted for consideration, and teams have spent hundreds of hours pouring through them.

Join us as we welcome Dan Schwartz, Dean of the School of Education, and Lloyd Minor, Dean of the School of Medicine, for an exciting and informative update on where things have been and what's next in planning for Stanford’s future. The evening event will consist of a conversation with the Deans conducted by a local moderator, audience Q&A, and heavy appetizers + drinks. 

About the Speakers:

Daniel L. Schwartz is the I. James Quillen Dean and Nomellini & Olivier Professor of Educational Technology at the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE). An expert in human learning and educational technology, Schwartz oversees a laboratory whose computer-focused developments in science and math instruction permit original research into fundamental questions of learning. He has taught math in rural Kenya, English in south-central Los Angeles, and multiple subjects in Kaltag, Alaska. This diversity of experience informs his work. Among many honors, Schwartz was named Graduate School of Education Teacher of the Year for 2015. His latest book, The ABCs of How We Learn: 26 Scientifically Proven Approaches, How They Work and When to Use Them, distills learning theories into practical solutions for use at home or in the classroom. NPR noted the book among the "best reads" for 2016.
